Semper Fi

On Feb. 2, 2014 at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center in Alexandria, VA, the President’s Own Marine Band conducted by Maj. Jason K. Fettig played the bejeezus out of Chunk. Someone who works for the government was smart enough to record it, and the Marines are quick enough on their feet to post it in their “New Music Corner”.

Your tax dollars at work:

My favorite part is about two minutes in, when the keyboard player (emulating a Hammond B3) just can’t help him/herself, smells an opportunity, and starts slamming out a chewy chromatic solo.

Chunk is 11 years old now. I never realized that until I saw the “©2003″ staring at me on the Marine Band web page. My old friend is aging well.
